    The current Cap Fréhel lighthouse is one of the 5 most powerful French lighthouses. Its lantern located more than 100 m above sea level (32,85m above the ground) carries more than 53 km. This Breton lighthouse can be visited. Its construction, started in 1946, was completed in 1950. From the top of the gallery, an exceptional panorama: the moor, Fort La Latte, the harbor of St Malo, the Cotentin coast, off the Normandy corner islands, the bay of Saint Brieuc , the island of Brehat.
    At the tip of Cap Fréhel, the old semaphore has now disappeared. It was burned during the Second World War, by French soldiers, before the arrival of the Germans.

    Disabled access: there are a few reserved spaces in the car park. Access is possible for wheelchairs thanks to a small path that leads to the old road. Wheelchairs can pass next to the barrier that blocks access. Free parking with PMR card.
